DRAWING AND PAINTING IN TUSCANY with Paula Cleggett
September 22nd- 29th 2018

In this 7-day workshop, you will capture medieval towns as well as the storied fields and farmlands of Tuscany, central Italy’s most scenic region.

Participants at all artistic skill levels are welcome. For the beginning artist, we will explore fundamental design principles and elements -- composition, color, contrast, shape, line, value -- as they apply to drawing and painting the landscape. For the established artist, your painting skills will be strengthened and your confidence enhanced with the unique opportunities and challenges this Tuscan landscape offers.

Trying to convincingly portray a 3-dimensional subject (a landscape) onto a 2-dimentional space (a canvas) is in itself a challenge. We will cover time-tested theories and practical approaches to address any design challenge.

Expect painting and drawing demonstrations, critiques and self-assessments. Workshop size allows for individual attention. Work at your own pace and, most importantly, enjoy the experience.

Let the inspiration begin! During our week-long workshop we will visit picturesque and historically significant towns, two of which are designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites: San Gimignano and Siena. Most conveniently, the 18th Century Villa, where we’ll reside, offers stunning views of vineyards, olive trees, cypress trees and wheat fields -- ideal for painting, sketching or photographing.

EAT. PAINT. TOUR. REPEAT. What’s not to love?
